An associate professor of the University of Karachi has been missing for the last 18 days, Express News reported.

Dr Muhammad Ismail of the university's Department of Islamic Studies was picked up the law-enforcement agencies, claims his wife Amna Ismail.

"Some law-enforcement personnel came to our house in the early hours of September 15," she told reporters.

"They took away my husband . He was only allowed to take his identity card with him," she added.

Amna said she had informed the university's administration about her husband being whisked away by law-enforcement personnel but the officials there were reluctant to take up the case.

She sent a letter to the university's vice chancellor and the dean of the Department of Islamic Studies but was still awaiting a response.

The University of Karachi's security adviser, Mohammad Zubair, confirmed that the administration had received Amna's letter about her husband's abduction.

He added that the university administration was cooperating with Dr Muhammad Ismail's family and making efforts for bringing him back.
